It's that time of year again and our home is overflowing with newborn love and a bubbly 2 year old that forever keeps us on our toes.
It's no secret that I am a huge fan of supporting family/small businesses!
Maybe it is because I come from a family of craftsmen or maybe it's because I truly appreciate high-quality, hand-crafted goods that have a holistic sustainable life from sourced organic materials that make our carbon footprint less traceable to putting food on the table of honest hard working families. Whatever it may be, handmade always takes the cake when it comes to anything fashion, home decor or toys for me!
So without further delay, below is my 2017 list of Favorite Things!
